The Cherry and Whites travel to Ashton Gate in a midweek fixture for the final pool game of the Premiership Rugby Cup on Wednesday 30 March.
Gloucester Rugby have named a side with a strong Academy presence with 20 players in the squad either being in the Academy or having graduated from it.
Reece Dunn starts at fullback and will make his Gloucester Rugby debut with Alex Morgan and Jake Morris on the wings.
Louis Hillman-Cooper and Giorgi Kveseladze start in the midfield with George Barton captaining the side at fly-half. Stephen Varney starts at scrumhalf.
In the forwards, Olly Adkins, Henry Walker and Bryan O’Connor make up the front row with Arthur Clark and Alex Craig at second row.
Freddie Thomas, Harry Taylor and Jack Clement are named in the backrow.
George Skivington is looking forward to the game.
“The Prem Cup is a great competition and I’m really excited to see how this squad will step up to the challenge.
“Ashton Gate is never an easy place to play but we’ve had some good training sessions and are looking forward to the challenge.
“It’s a great opportunity for a lot of the younger guys in the squad and they’ve been pushing really hard in training. It’s great that they have the chance to get out there and show what they can do.”
